I didn't mean to hijack anyone's thread, I was just responding to Roger's posting of the new generic jedi standards in this thread. If this was not meant to be discussed here, then perhaps it should not have been posted here. As Roger said, no harm done. I will wait for the standards to be posted in an appropriate thread. Cheers.

That's ok but you might just want to start a new topic called comments & questions on costume standards. That way other people could post their questions there as well.

Yep, scarf-style (around-the-neck) tabards are still okay Wink

The Jedi standards have been updated today, and can be viewed here and are effective immediately.

I still think you're okay with your design, but you should review the update anyway. Oh...and there is a thread to discuss the standards....here:

Any suggestions for the cloak (not robe) closure? - I noticed that the cloaks in ROTJ have a chain and clasp type thing except for Luke's which is some kind of fabric. I could not tell what they used in the earlier movies.

Built my lightsaber this weekend. It is silver and black. Just the hilt which is what is needed for the costume. Since I am doing the Luke style belt I went with the D-ring for the attachment to the belt.

Nice lightsaber!

As for closure for the cloak? Well, Anakin didn't use one at all. If you want to use one, just make it "StarWarsy". I know that's not much of an answer. Just be creative...but make sure it's not a stand out piece that draws focus away from your costume.

Thanks! Made it for under $15.00 and it came out better than I planned. No cutting involved just screwing and a little gluing. It is actually quite light and very durable. Got the skirt, tunic skirt, cape, hood, and scarf tabard patterns figured out and had to go buy some different fabric as did not have enough for the color scheme due to shrinkage after washing. Skirt and under tunic still pale blue, cape is deep dark brown, obi & outer tunic will be grey and tabards most likely will be black to match the black belt and boots. For the outer tunic the wrap is left side on top right side underneath and the strip on the tunic does not extend below the belt?

Worked on the belt and pouches - hope they meet the requirements. The belt is black because my boots are also black. The buckle looks more worn than in the picture and is blackish with silver undertone

That's a nice looking belt. I like the aged and worn look of the buckle, as if you had it since you were a padawan.

As for the cloak, in Episode I, all of the Jedi had a hook and eye at the neck of their robe. I saw this clearly during the 3D re-release at the very opening (with Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan) and during the funeral scene at the end. I believe that Luke's cloak was the same way, but I do not have any high detail pictures of it. So, you may want to look into a simple hook and eye, perhaps with and reinforcement for the stress it might cause on the seams.

Thanks for the help I will be scouring my books this weekend for closures but I am thinking a hidden hook eye may be the best

Making progress slowly but surely. Leather belt is finished and patterns are all sized and cut out except for the cloak and hood (still finalizing those). Now for the sewing-lots and lots of sewing!

Got the outer Tunic done

The Obi is just pinned at the moment as I am waiting for the inner tunic and skirt to adjust the tightness. Also, my dress form is not the best so there is some wrinkling in the tunic that is not there when I put it on.

Here are some pictures








Sorry if they are a tad blurry but the dog was helping.

Here is the scarf tabard - it looks really long but will look better with the full length skirt - which is almost done!



The dress form makes the back look crooked but when I put it on it sits evenly.

I love it so far! I think the suede looking fabric looks awesome with the weathered belt, Very Happy I am making my own costume too and our tunics are exactly the same style <3

Got the skirt done. The bottom is just pinned as I am letting the fabric hang for a few days so the weight of it settles down before actually hemming it. This is the front: Here is the back:

The Obi is still just pinned - need the inner tunic before I can finish that as well.

Now for the inner tunic - same fabric as the skirt so should look good when its all together.
